Buffalo Businessman Boasts Three Sons in the NFL - “Fittest Family In America”
Gordon Gronkowski, founder of G&G Fitness Equipment Inc. based in Buffalo, NY, now has three sons who are playing in the NatioNFL: Dan, tight-end for the Broncos; Chris, full-back for the Cowboys; and Rob, tight-end for the Patriots.
Three brothers making the NFL from one household is not as shocking as it might seem once you meet the entire Gronkowski family. Hailing from the Buffalo, NY suburb of Williamsville, Dan, Chris and Rob are the middle three of five boys in the Gronkowski clan.
The oldest brother, Gordie Jr., a Jacksonville University baseball star and former Anaheim Angels draftee, finished this season batting .319 with 16 homers and 50 RBIs in 46 games as a First Baseman for the Gateway Grizzlies in the Independent League.
The youngest brother, Glenn is a Senior at Williamsville North High School. He is arguably the best athlete of them all, excelling at both football and baseball. He finished last year’s baseball season batting over .600.
The patriarch, Gordy Sr., is a former Offensive Lineman from Syracuse who owns one of the nation’s largest chains of retail fitness stores, G&G Fitness Equipment. At 6’3” and a lean 220 lbs he is still an imposing physical specimen at age 50. “I’m so proud of all of them, they each overcame their own challenges and never quit, never gave anything less than everything they had.” Gordy Sr. said. “My weekend travel schedule for the next few months is going to be crazy.” He added.
Gordy Sr. also issued an open invitation, “I don’t keep it a secret from anyone how my boys got into NFL shape. Any of my consultants at G&G can tell you exactly how to achieve what my boys have. I’m positive we have the fittest family in the country and I don’t mind sharing how we got there with other people.” The four oldest Gronkowski boys all attended college on athletic scholarships. The youngest is expected to follow suit.
